their record is not evidence to the contrary? Power rankings a better way to determine who has the better teams? You may be the only guy in the country to think that the Jags are better than the Colts. Even Jag fans think that the Colts are a better team.

The Jags aren't as talented as the Colts. They lose, because they aren't very good.

The Colts lose because they make too many mistakes. If the Colts didn't make the mistakes they make, if they don't shoot themselves in the foot as much as they do, they'd easily be the better team.

The Jags didn't help us sweep them. They just couldn't hang. The Titans helped us win. The Colts will help us win.

There is one impressive top stat that Luck shares with Brees.........18 interceptions. Of course, Luck balances things out with 18 TDs, while Brees does a slight better job at 32. But 32 is also a special number for Luck........the number of times he has been sacked this season.

Y'know, I've been going on about how bad I think the Colts are, and how much better a team we are. But I just got to thinking.

It's possible for the Colts to win this game. If Matt Schaub (the guy we said would have put us in the Super Bowl last year) is still in the funk he was in last week, we don't stand a chance.

I know the defense isn't playing top 10 football. I know we have issues at LB & DB. But I'm confident Wade can adjust to what's happening & get some opportune stops.

But if Matt's head is on Venus I don't think there's anything anyone can do. & if you think about it, he's been in it since midway through the second qtr of the Tennessee game.

Of all the memorable quotes Bill Parcells has delivered, it's one of the most repeated:

"You are what your record says you are."
http://blogs.buffalonews.com/press-c...s-you-are.html
And it's one of the most ridiculous.

The Giants won the Super Bowl last year when 9 teams had a better record than they did going into the playoffs.

Their record said they were the 10th best team. While I'm not one that believes the best team is the one that wins the Super Bowl, I'll guarantee the 10th best team never does.

And that scenario has happened a few times.
2010: 7 teams "better" than the Packers.
2007: 6 teames "better" than the Giants.

NoxiousDog hitting it out of the park.

You just have to put it together when it counts. Even the Packers didn't come back and repeat their previous SB title, stuff happens.

One year you get over on other teams. The very next year, other teams get over on YOU. It happens. It's sports.
